"Giggles the Clown" in Court

By  | 

An Orchard Mesa man known to most as "Giggles the Clown" was back in court Wednesday facing multiple charges of sexually exploiting children in Otero County.

Antonio Lazcano was arrested back in May after a mother found sexually explicit photo's of him in her underage daughter's email. To catch Lazcano in the act, the woman posed as her daughter on-line and watched as he tried to lure her to a motel room.

The Otero County Sheriff's office says Lazcano emailed sexually explicit photos to a minor. They have charged him with sexual assault against a child by a person in a position of trust, Internet luring of a child with intent to exploit and four counts of Internet sexual exploitation of a child.

Lazcano was scheduled to enter a plea Wednesday. Instead his plea and sentencing were postponed until late October.
